The combination of this charming house with individual rooms, the great breakfast (prepared by Anna) with the experienced tour guide Vasilis is unique. The atmosphere is like staying at friends, you will get lots of advice where to go and what to do and if You are unsure ask Vasilis to guide You on a tour. Regardless whether you have a special wish for breakfast or need a pickup at the end of a oneway hike - Vasilis and Anna will do everything to make it happen. We stayed in MAy 2022 for 11 nights and had a wonderfull time - hiking every day. And we will come back - for sure. Thank You very much Rosi & Thomas

This is our 3rd time at saxonis house in Papigo. Cannot recommend more than that, this time we stayed at the oldest house in papigo which became part of saxonis. Vasili is a great host that knows the area and the hiking trails the best and will even take the time to show you the secret trails. We will be back

A lovely traditional guesthouse in the picturesque village of Papigo in the Zagorohoria. The owner Vasilis has done his best to retain the old and authentic charm of a village abode - the old entrance, the well maintained courtyard area with the most beautiful colour of roses and flowers, the stone rooftops with the traditional stone chimneys, the lovely sitting area outside with a view of the mountain peaks... And we loved our cosy and clean room, with a lounge area on the ground floor and the bedroom upstairs. The breakfast was served outside on the terrace, by a very friendly lady, in the company of a very cuddly , friendly cat. From the moment I called Vasilis to make a reservation, I knew that I had found the accommodation we were looking for. He was so helpful and easy going that I recognized in him the soul and heart that is necessary for every hotel or guesthouse in order for it to be a place with staying at. I have often said this. We have stayed in supposedly good hotels but there was no soul in them and the lack of a soul makes all the difference for me. So, yes, if you are looking for a lovely cosy guesthouse, look no further, Saxonis Houses is your place. Vasilis is also the man to ask for any recommendations about where to go and what to do. He knows the area well as he often leads hiking tours. For those of you who are interested in hiking, this must be paradise, with so many trails to follow - through the Vikos Gorge, up the mountains, down to the Voidomati and Aoos rivers, up to monasteries, over old stone bridges. One of those places we already look forward to coming back to.

We stayed here for one night at the end of a Zagori hiking holiday. A beautiful, traditional Papingo building. The room was spacious, the welcome was warm and the breakfast was good. Highly recommended.

What can we say? Our stay at Papigo was made even better as we walked in! A pretty, traditional room was waiting for us. The décoration of the room was respectful to the history of the houses and the region. The breakfast was traditional, home made and varied. It changed a bit everyday, so we tasted a lot of different jams, sweets and pies. The owners are very helpful, and not only about the basic questions. If you are a sporty mountaineer, they will guide you in the best way possible, helping you navigate the mountains and th gorges. Plus, they can give you little home made treats for your backpacking. We will try to come back next year for the race!

Saxonis was the perfect accommodation in the beautiful village of Papigo. The owner, Vasilis, immediately felt like an old friend of ours and kept in touch with us even after we left his property, making sure we got our covid test arranged. We asked him to pack breakfast for us and he waited for us at 6 in the morning with fresh coffee and breakfast all packed up and ready to go. The rooms are nice, clean and cozy and the hotel is situated in a beautiful corner of the village. Highly recommended!

We stayed at Saxonis Houses for 12 nights (our initial booking was for 5) and i can still say this was not enough.. especially after meeting our host Vasilis, who treated us literally as family. His deep knowledge of the mountain and his “tip from the local” attitude gave us the chance to experience all the nearby major trekking paths. I highly recommend contacting him directly, to arrange private guided tours in the nearby mountains. The rooms are spacious, we even used the fireplace to cook and the terrace view is overwhelming. So sorry we had to leave paradise :(

Just back from a three night stay. Vasilis and Anna are brilliant. This is a very special place. Vasilis is passionate about Saxonis and the region. He suggested great activities and restaurants. The rooms are stylish and the beds soooooo comfy. The location is simply stunning. The highlight of our holiday.

We stayed here for 3 nights and really loved this place. Vasilis, your host, is a genuinely nice guy, and nothing is too much trouble for him. It’s set back about 100m from the main car park in the village (our only grumble is that a sign near the car park would have been helpful in finding Saxonis) and around you are various cosy little alleys and narrow back lanes with cafes and restaurants. All are walkable. Saxonis itself has a modest number of rooms with a very pleasant covered terrace which enables you to breakfast and enjoy views of the stunning mountains. Very quiet at night and great for stargazing. Vasilis is a mountain guide and is hugely knowledgable being one of the first hosts in the village years ago. He is full of ideas and suggestions about walks, day trips and things to do. Papigko is a great location for exploring the Vikos Gorge but you don’t have to be superfit to enjoy it - lots of places to drive to, or shortish walks to neighbouring villages. All in all, a lovely place to stay, and Vasilis is such a warm and personable host.

The hotel is gorgeous! It has large internal spaces for your personal belongings and it is very clean. Also it has a breakfast area with an outstanding view to the whole mountain. Last but not least, the staff is friendly and willing to provide you with everything you might need. All these combined can make your experience there far better than you can imagine!
